SEIZING THE MOMENT

No other group or resource can claim the unique call and ministry of the church to offer "living water" to a thirsty world. The church can "seize the moment" and choose to diligently affirm and renew its mission to persons in a world in need of spiritual balance and restored hope. Or the church can remain quietly passive, watching as the world "parties" on in hope of finding meaning, direction, and fulfillment. I believe that God is calling the church to [act] with holy confidence and spiritual boldness. With its unique Good News, the church can be in the world, but not of the world, calming anxiety, eliminating the dread, instilling hope.
